19 Bedroom Ideas and Feng Shui Critiques (Part 1 of 3)

If you’re trying to give your bedroom a new look but don’t know where to start, here are some luxurious bedroom pictures to give you ideas and to get your creative juices flowing.

These 19 bedroom pictures give you ideas on furniture arrangement, color pairings, decor, and bed placements, along with some feng shui critiques. I will briefly explain what I liked about each bedroom while identifying both good and bad feng shui without being too repetitive. 

Special thanks to Home Stratosphere and Zillow Digs for supplying these images.

#1

Bedroom with light green theme and plants

Likes: The color theme is very soothing, with green and its variations as the main theme. For the size of the bedroom, it doesn’t overcrowd itself with furniture.

Dislikes: Feng shui doesn’t like plants in the bedroom, so I would do away with the large plants sitting at both corners on the side of the bed. Also, the night stands on each side should be even in size and height.

#2

Bedroom with multiple glass doors waterfront

Likes: The room has a great view of the ocean, and the ceiling lights save plenty of space, which makes the room feel much more spacious.

Dislikes: There are WAY too many balcony doors, four to be exact. The beams on the ceiling can be distracting, and the desk can be placed somewhere other than the bedroom.

#3

Bedroom with odd sloped ceiling private balcony ocean

Likes: Here’s another bedroom with great water view. The night stands are symmetrical, and the furniture, wall, and bed linens use great color variations.

Dislikes: The slanted ceiling can be distracting, which can be cured with a canopy bed. Considering the size of this bedroom, placing a king-sized bed can be a better use of space in this bedroom.

#4

Bedroom with patterned bed head

Likes: The two reading chairs are symmetrical and nicely placed, and the patterned wooden frame above the head of the bed looks extremely fancy.

Dislikes: The furniture on both sides of the bed are a little too tall. Also, the chandelier hanging over the bed can subtly bring you stress. The worst feng shui in this bedroom is what seem to be another room right sitting right behind the patterned wooden frame.

#5

Bedroom with persian carpet soft bedding and mirror

Likes: The headboard is tall and solid. The nightstands on each side also seem quite even and has a height that matches the bed’s height. The use of carpet and hardwood flooring also gives a nice touch to the bedroom.

Dislikes: The sofa in front of the bed is quite large, making it difficult to traverse around the bed when you need to go to the restroom or to the door. Also, I would place the mirror that’s facing the bed somewhere else.

#6

Bedroom with plant and high ceiling

Likes: Great use of earthly green and wood as the main theme. The padded wall and the sofa placements are great, as well as the nightstands on each side of the bed.

Dislikes: Again, I will place the plants somewhere else. Even though the bed is placed against a padded wall, adding a small headboard can further improve the look and feel of this bedroom.

#7

Bedroom with sofa at end of bed

Likes: The size of the bed fits nicely with this bedroom. The addition of a carpet gives a nice touch that highlights the sofa area (and can keep the room’s carpet clean in case you spill the tea).

Dislikes: Not sure about the wall decor right on top the bed. Also, the sofa is a little too big, making it hard to walk around the bed and bedroom.

#8

Bedroom with soft padding hanging chandliers

Likes: The padding on the wall matches perfectly with the bed’s linen. The hanging chandeliers on both sides of the bedroom are also a nice addition, which saves surface space on the furniture that are on both sides of the bed.

Dislikes: Not much dislikes here, besides the two oddly-shaped furniture in front of the bed.

#9

Bedroom with soft white linen fragile frame

Likes: The white linen and sofa are good highlights from the wall and carpet color. The sofas are identical, and the carpet right below the bed is also a nice addition that highlights the bed.

Dislikes: Besides the plants, the bed lacks a sturdy headboard. Also, somehow the bed frame doesn’t look sturdy and seems over-burdened by the amount of blanket and pillows sitting on it.

#10

Bedroom with spiral stairs facing tv fireplace

Likes: I like the outside view of this room and how the fireplace serves as a wall that blocks the desk behind it.

Dislikes: I have many dislikes here. To mention a few, the bedroom’s size is too big and too bright. Also, the stairway at the right seems very odd. It feels like anyone can just climb up from the stairs, which takes away a great amount of privacy from this bedroom.

#11

Bedroom with white green theme door to balcony

Likes: I love the green accents and the furniture in this room. It also gets great sunlight and a great out-door view.

Dislikes: Not much dislikes here, besides nit-picking about the having tiles instead of carpet. But that’s just personal preference.

#12

Bright large luxury bedroom with black furniture white bed

Likes: The bed frame and furniture looks fancy, and the black accent brings some color diversity into this extremely bright room.

Dislikes: The room is too big, and the restroom door seems to be facing the bed, which can bring health consequences in the long run. Overall, this doesn’t seem to be a comfortable bedroom.

#13

Canopy Bed Luxurious Bedroom

Likes: The use of a canopy bed is ideal for this type of bedroom. I also like the color of the curtains and the addition of carpets on top of the hardwood floor.

Dislikes: Again, the room is too big, and the room gets too much sunlight – both of which are not ideal for a bedroom. Also, the bed is placed against a glass wall with a walkway on the other side. Any movements from the walkway can disturb your relaxation and sleep.

#14

Floating Bed hardwood floor mounted tv

Likes: I like the simplicity of this bedroom. The carpet is a nice addition, and the wall-mounted TV saves a great deal of space (though TV is not suggested to be placed in the bedroom).

Dislikes: I don’t like floating beds. Whenever I toss and turn on it, I fear I’m breaking it little by little. Also, I would move the bed more to towards the camera, because it seems like the right side of the bed is facing the bathroom.

#15

Large bedroom high ceiling large windows overlooking lawn

Likes: This room has a great outside view of an open pasture. The brown and red accents in this room are great color variations that matches with each other.

Dislikes: Again, there are too many plants in this room. Also, the ceiling seems unusually high, which may lower the quality of your sleep.

#16

Large bedroom modern theme chandlier glassy wall

Likes: I like the white carpet on top of the dull-colored hardwood floor. The size of the bed fits well with the size of this bedroom.

Dislikes: The color theme is too black and white, and the zig-zag design stresses the eyes, both of which can give you subtle mood swings. Using a different furniture can vastly improve the comfort level of this bedroom.

#17

Large bedroom white theme with small living room

Likes: The color theme is soft and pleasant. The furniture are symmetrical and balanced, and their size fits well with the size of this bedroom.

Dislikes: I don’t like how the windows on each side of the bed has metal bars installed. Though I understand that it could be installed  for safety reasons, just looking at it can sometimes make you feel caged.

#18

Large bedroom with bed next to window and high ceiling

Likes: The flower-patterned carpet fits extremely well, which can subtly induce romance in the bedroom.

Dislikes: Besides the humongous size of this bedroom and the shape of the ceiling, the head of the bed is right under a window, which is known to disrupt sleep.

#19

Large bedroom with curtain divider white theme

Likes: The brown and earthly color theme makes this room very relaxing. The black colored furniture are balanced with the brighter colored curtains, carpet, and lamps.

Dislikes: No dislikes besides the obvious feng shui taboo: beams. Not only are they distracting, it also makes the ceiling feel lower.


Conclusion

Though your bedroom may not look like any of these, you can use their color themes for your bedroom feng shui makeover.

Here’s a quick tip that you can take away about feng shui colors. When selecting colors, you need to consider the amount of light in your bedroom. Generally speaking, the color of your bedroom should not be too bright. This is because brighter colors tend to reflect more light, and exposure to light before bedtime can hinder your sleep.  If you do desire brighter colors, they can be balanced with dimmer and softer lights.

Many of these bedroom images have plants. If you’re wondering whether to place plants in the bedroom, my suggestion is to avoid them.

Thanks Glenn. Will check it out.

Hi, Victor.

I know this is an old post but, as I am shopping for a new bedroom dresser, I am wondering about furniture color.

Right now, I have a small black bed frame, two black nightstands, and a black-and-white chair in the corner. Artwork on the wall also has black frames. The walls are a soft white, with the exception of on accent wall, which is turquoise. The turquoise wall has a large window, and an “eyebrow” window on top of that, which I have covered with a room-darkening black-and-white window treatment.

I am considering purchasing a fairly tall dresser, and I have a choice of two colors: Black or, what the store calls “wheat.” The wheat is actually more like a brown–not a yellowish- tan, which is what I think of when I think of wheat. The dresser is solid wood and very high quality, so I am happy with the style and the piece itself. But I am struggling with the color.

My question: Would a black dresser be too much black in the bedroom? I have read that black is a good feng shui color for bedrooms because of it’s “inward focusing” nature. But then I have also read that some feng shui experts consider black furniture to be bad luck–to the point that they recommend covering it with a colored cloth.

Any insights?

Thanks!

Hi Vickie,

You really like black, huh? I think colors only bring limited feng shui effects: https://fengshuinexus.com/blog/colors-influence-homes-feng-shui/

As for bedroom, I think black is just fine because it absorbs light (Yang) and bedroom requires more Yin energy for a good night’s rest. If it gets too dark at night, you can balance it with brighter lights, but not the level of brightness that’ll keep you awake.

In terms of visuals, if you have a white/bright flooring, black furniture are just fine. It’ll just make your room look smaller.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, Victor!

Hi Victor,

Loving all the photos and explanations. Thank you!
I have a high bedroom ceiling and it slants from high to low (right to left), and the bed is right in the middle. Do you have a remedy for something as odd as this? Thank you. Lea

Hi Lea,
The easiest remedy is to use a canopy bed (with the top covered if you prefer). The pillars on the side will help support the slanted ceiling.
